All my bookmarks disappeared after Firefox did an update. I have read all the articles and looked at all the solutions I can find on here and nothing seems to work. Where did they go? WHY did they go? I want them back.

Hello, I recently moved to Firefox from another browser and I am very pleased with it. My usage is that my computer remains on 24/7 with the browser open. I saw a paragraph in the help docs:

"Firefox's memory usage may increase if it's left open for long periods of time. A workaround for this is to periodically restart Firefox."

However this can be inconvenient when you have several tabs open that are logged in to various sites for work, which also retain state which is not restored when the browser is restarted.

Over a few days the memory "leaking" (?) is mounting up significantly as per attached. In summary:

Pre close - system RAM usage 12.5GB Post close browser - system RAM usage 8.1GB (4.4GB drop!!) Re-open browser with same tabs - system RAM usage 8.7GB (actually 9.0GB after all tab views were accessed and put back into the state they were in before closed)

From this simple test I can see that 12.5GB - 9GB = 3.5GB was hogged by the browser and not actually required.

As a developer I am interested to understand the reason for this memory leaking. Is there anything I can do while the browser is open to free it up? Or cause it to not "leak" in the first place?

Thanks,

Andrew

We use IBM's iNotes product for internal e-mail. Within approximately the last eight weeks we've been encountering random carriage returns added to the messages we send when auto spell check is enabled. If we disable auto spell check or use a different browser (Google Chrome and Apple Safari was tested) the problem disappears. The problem seems to disappear for a short time if we clear the Firefox cache.

I've been working with IBM support regarding this problem and they're convinced the problem is related to Firefox. Has anyone else encountered this problem?

Thanks, Bob

"Password Editor" in add-ons is not compatible with my version of Firefox - Without going crazy - there should be a way - under this setting - "privacy and security" - to Manually add a web-site with login/password. And if not - why not?

I use Firefox on Windows and Firefox tries to use too much of my system's RAM. I know this is for performance reasons BUT there is very little performance gain. This behavior is fine for users who only run Firefox and little else. BUT I use other memory intensive apps not only Firefox so Firefox using up lots of my RAM is very bad for my use case.

On a system with lots of RAM when I use gmail and Facebook on Firefox the firefox processes can bloat to more than 2.5GB! And it actually seems to start getting slower at that point.

But if I run Firefox in a Windows Virtual Machine with only 1.5GB RAM and start using gmail and Facebook a lot the largest firefox process only gets to a max of 750MB. So that is proof that Firefox can actually work with less RAM without crashing.

How can I get Firefox to behave as if the system has less RAM (e.g. just set a max RAM limit) without to resorting to running it in a VM? I have tried stuff like Process Governor but Firefox tends to crash when it hits the limit instead of running the GC. In contrast on a virtual machine with less RAM Firefox doesn't seem to crash and just uses less RAM.

Is there also a way to get Firefox to automatically do what the about:memory "Minimize memory usage" button does, when it starts to go past a memory usage threshold?

Though YouTube videos play well, every 10-30 seconds or so, there's a frame or two where it goes back a quarter to half of a second. I've tried using the h246ify plugin addon, but it changed nothing. I see problems with video and audio playback are quite common in Firefox, but I haven't seen too many in Quantum (especially something so little as a random stutter). Any help is greatly appreciated, though it's not a very game-breaking problem (I've had this issue since Quantum came out and I installed Windows).

I have Firefox 62.0.3 (with * Shockwave Flash 31.0 r0) installed on my Dell Latitude 6510 running Windows 7 Pro 32 bit. I searched (with google) for Dell XPS 15 and found a number of interesting configurations on the dell.com web site. Selecting one of these I then tried to customize the configuration, but none of the options buttons on the page (e.g. Select Windows 10 Pro instead of the default Windows 10 Home OS) work. Further, about 90% of the time after selecting the config option to change the page will freeze and then after a bit FF will crash with a "Gah! ...." message. I thought it was the Dell web page that was screwing up until I loaded the Chrome browser, did the same search and found that everything on the Dell page worked as expected. Hence I suspect some problem with FF 62.0.3 (or maybe Adobe Flash??).

Here is the exact URL that I was trying to interact with that FF crashed or failed to work correctly on

I changed a couple names of my bookmarked pages so that it would shorten the pop-up menus and sub-pop-up menus that appear whenever I hover over different folders of "Bookmarks" I've saved. I'm seeing those changes reflected on the device on which I made them but not on my other computer where I'm also signed in to the same Mozilla account.

Any idea why those changes aren't syncing and being reflected across all my devices? Or... how long do such changes typically take to sync?

Thanks! -Nate
